 More Morning Glories

Canary Bird Vine behind which you can see Night Scented Stalks (for the 3rd year in a row)

I am amazed that the stalks have re-seeded themselves for three years, but, I suspect next year they will be trying to grow in the lawn and won't be given a chance to grow. I will try to get some seeds and throw them further back in the bed and see what happens. I suspect human intervention will make sure they don't come back though.

Thanks for looking.

  4. Native flowers that reseed are usually so beautiful, i wish we could have them instead of lawns.

    Nice shots.

  8. How I love morning glories. I haven't had any for years and they used to be a must have. That was when there was a fence against which to grow them. Maybe next summer..

    Lovely blooms, Reb.

  10. Natural reseeding always seems like a little miracle to me. One of the Need To Do items on my backburner is to become well-versed in flower identification...there's just so much to learn, it's like another language.

    1. Jo, it's almost like it's Latin or something :) The best way to learn is to plant things. Something I am sure your girls would love to help you with.
